Support The Frances Clark Center

An educational institution (501c3) that serves pianists and teachers through its divisions which include Piano Magazine, Piano Inspires Kids, Journal of Piano Research, NCKP: The Piano Conference, New School for Music Study, Online Teacher Education, and Piano Education Press.

Thank you for the wonderful webinars! I have already made a donation to support the organization and encourage others to do the same.


I enjoyed interacting with other young professional piano teachers. I do not find many opportunities to talk about some of the challenges of our work.


I so appreciate these webinars! They make me feel current, connected, and progressive in my own teaching. Thank you!


I’m in my first year of teaching private piano lessons and I found this to be very helpful. Thank you!


As an aspiring black classical pianist, you have inspired me [through Piano Stories on Stage]. Thank you for that.” – Anonymous
